This review of the literature seeks to explore resources published since the year 2000 that relate to sustainable practices of libraries. These resources have been clustered into five groups: exploring the definitions of ‘greening’ in libraries, the importance of libraries committing to sustainability as one of their core values and reflecting these values in their policies and activities, the role of libraries in educating their communities about sustainable practices, and the opportunities for libraries to measure their sustainability practices with a view to continuous improvement.
